I'll take a side order of sleep, please!

Ok, I knew going into this that sleep would be evasive, at best, but come on! I could use some real sleep for more than 2-3 hours at a time...really!

Lil Princess teased us. She had about a week of time where she was going down at about 10:30 at night and not getting up until 3:30 or 4:00...that is a decent amount of sleep at one time. I'll take it! Well, apparently she has something else in mind these past few nights. She has been up every 2-3 hours again. One would think that maybe she is going through a growth spurt and so she wakes to eat, but NO! She isn't really eating even. She just wakes up and wants to snuggle. I am all for snuggling, but not at 1, 3, 5 in the night!

I know I was lucky, but Lil Bug was sleeping through the night when she was 8 weeks old. Guess what? Lil Princess was 8 weeks on Monday and there is no sign in sight that she intends to sleep through the night anytime soon. Different children, different sleep habits. This, I know! But a girl can hold out hope, can't she?

I will survive. Sleep isn't all it is cracked up to be anyway. I mean...I am much more productive when I am up 18-20 hours a day. So, I will not complain...but, should Lil Princess ever find it in her to sleep a whole night though, I will find myself very much appreciative of her efforts. :)
